We are award winning!
We are delighted to share that our two current projects are now award winning! Birgham Haugh and Leet Haugh, were given the top two awards for architecture from the Berwickshire Civic Society. These two stunning developments were designed in conjunction with Borders architectural firm Aitken Turnbull.
In the ceremony held at Ayton Castle on Monday 29th September, in addition to recognising the design, the projects were recognised for the collaborative approach taken by the developer/ landowner, use of local materials, incorporation of artisan details and the efforts to use local tradesmen and suppliers.
